February Highlights:

Pre-K to 2nd Grade & 3rd to 5th Grade: We had two classes together this month. We explored having trust in yourself through meditation and drawing ourselves as superheroes. The 2nd Sunday together we explored broken trust in our faith and how we repair relationships with UU’s of color.

Crossing Paths: Began their exploration of Islam

Coming of Age: Trip to Sanctuary Boston joined by the youth group from First Parish in Lexington.

March:

Family Together Time

Pilgrimage – the Journey Out

What places would be considered pilgrimages in your family? A special bench in a park where you shared news of a new family member? A place where a pet is buried? A National Park where a child made their first big hike? Name these places as places of pilgrimage for your family.
